COVID-19 Safety Precautions for Orthopedics


While an “elective” orthopedic procedure or consultation may not be considered urgent, it is not necessarily optional. Putting off a joint replacement or delaying an orthopedic surgery can potentially cause decreased function and quality of life—and in some cases—further deterioration and complications when the issue is finally addressed. Your doctor can consult with you and recommend the best timing for treatment. 

At Virtua Health, it’s safe to get the care you need right now. Since the late-May re-opening of elective procedures in New Jersey, we have safely performed hundreds of orthopedic procedures across our ambulatory service centers (ASCs) and hospital-based orthopedic units. Your health and well-being are our very highest priorities. Our infection prevention specialists are leaders in providing guidelines to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases, and we take infection prevention very seriously throughout our facilities. In addition, we have carefully planned and taken extra precautions to help ensure that we are doing everything we can to minimize any risk to our patients and staff members. 

At Virtua, we have implemented a multi-layered approach  to create a safe and comfortable patient experience, including:

  • Pre-procedural quarantine
  • COVID-19 testing
  • Assessment questions during your pre-procedural phone call and again on procedure day
  • Limited, safety-focused visitor policies 
  • Patient Masking 
  • Use of personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Distancing prior to and after your procedure
  • Separate outpatient and inpatient areas away from where we may treat patients with COVID-19 Extensive cleaning protocols 
  • Escorting you to your ride home
